Hey Creative Friends, I’m back on the blog today with another share for Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I’m using more of their new ‘Sunkissed’ collection to document a sweet photo of Miss C from a few years back.

To start the page, I’ve backed a cut file, this one from CUT to YOU called ‘Fun plus Sun‘ with pattern papers from the A5 Paper Stack. The smaller prints in the A5 papers are ideal for this and I love how there are a couple of exclusive prints in the pack.

I’ve backed my photo with the ‘Sunny Days‘ pattern paper and used it to create a border around the base of my page. For the background of my layout, I’ve used a piece of pale blue card stock from my stash. I’ve also added here my signature stitching, I just love this detail.

Next, I’ve added my backed cut file onto the layout centred and a little towards the bottom of the page. Then, I’ve placed my photo at the centre bottom. I’ve raised on foam for dimension so it’s now time to embellish.

For the embellishments, I’ve gone with three clusters to create a visual triangle on my page. The main cluster features a sweet rainbow from the ‘Die Cut Ephemera‘ pack and a Sunshine element from the ‘Puffy Sticker pack‘ as well as some floral die cuts from the ‘Floral Ephemera pack‘.

For even more interest on my page, I’ve added in some of the ‘Wooden Buttons‘. I love the texture of these. As I build out the clusters, I’m making sure to have at least one of each of these in each one. I find that when I replicate elements in each of my clusters, it really helps pull the page together.

Here you can see the die cut pieces, a wooden button, puffy sticker and a typed sentiment from the ‘Accessory Sticker Sheet‘. I like to add these stickers with foam tape for added dimension. They really are a great way to round out a page and the sentiments really help to tell the story in the photos.

I’ve also made a YouTube process video for this layout which you can watch here:

Thanks for popping by today.

Until next time,
